I haven’t visited the park since I was a young child so it was neat to come back as an adult. They have added some areas but a majority is how I remember it. The midway was updated a a fun time. Enjoyed showing our little one the sites and plan to return again as there is so much to see.

Fort Edmonton Park is a haunted place. I once saw a large table move by it self right before my eyes in one of the rooms.

Great job on the midway. Train and streetcar are authentic modes of travel to cross the long walks in this park.

The entire experience was great. It is nice to be out in fresh air even though COVID rules have been reintroduced. The train is always fun. The street car is worth the ride. And the Ice Cream Shop is to die for

With the brand new Indigenous Peoples Experience Exhibit, together with the steam engine and train, the street car, the rides in the amusement park, various living history museums, Fort Edmonton Park has established itself the #1 cultural and tourist attraction in Edmonton and Alberta in Spring and Summer months for adults, kids, and families. The Indigenous Peoples Experience is a world class, one of a kind, multi-sensory exhibition of First Nations' and Metis' peoples' histories, cultures, experiences, and perspectives on Treaty 6 land, Beaver Hills, which is the present Edmonton region, Alberta, Canada. it is extremely educational and moving especially when comes to the history and legacy of residential schools in Canada. My wife and I had the popular August weekend buffet brunch at the Johnson's Cafe, Hotel Selkirk. $30 per adult including park admission, excellent value with plenty of food, and regular adult park admission is $26. The Johnson's Cafe was jam-packed with families on the Sunday we were there. One thing I would suggest Fort Edmonton Park to upgrade is the Gift Shop, not many variety of good quality gifts on sale there, quite disappointing. I highly recommend locals and tourists to visit or re-visit Fort Edmonton park, just seeing the new Indigenous Peoples Experience is already worth your admission money, you won't be disappointed.

I haven’t been to Fort Edmonton Park in years and was expecting more. The renovations or upgrades do not really seem to fit, ran out of time to see the new Indigenous exhibit, as we really didn’t know it was new or any different that the rest of the wall thru exhibits until we were boarding the train at 4:30. The modern (doesn’t fit with theme) gift shop was packed with people looking to spend money, felt empty and was lacking overall. The construction evidence of dirt and weeds everywhere was distracting. Full cost admission and many of attractions /exhibits were fully open and operating, including the trolley car. Nothing to see on the train ride other than the train itself.
I still enjoyed the visit as my tour companions are awesome and helped fill the entertainment gaps. Good place to spend some time, but a little expensive and disappointing with what is actually operating / open.

I bought a summer pass to Fort Edmonton Park as it is my favourite place in Edmonton. I especially was looking forward to the new Indigenous Experience. As a history teacher, I spent hours at this exhibit, taking the time to read everything. It is very informative.
I was disappointed with my experience in the rest of the Park. The Bazaar, Ukr Bookstore, Trading Post, Jasper House and Mosque are all closed, as well as other exhibits. Thick layers of dust could be seen in the buildings. The large piles of dirt from construction in the Park are unsightly.
As for the food, I found the new caterers to be inefficient. We were the first customers of the day and had to wait 20 minutes for our sandwiches, only to discover that my order was wrong. The food itself was subpar; neither my daughter nor I finished our food.
I found the "funhouse" to be lame and the giftshop lacking in selection. Approaching the Park, tall, white poles line the walkway that seem very out of place for a heritage attraction. The ticketing building has much too modern of a design. So many missed opportunities with this revamp. Excellent exhibits were sadly lost. Apart from the Indigenous Experience, I don't see any great improvements to the park.

Candy shop refused to return an item while I was still at the cash register!
I told them it contains an ingredient that I can’t eat, they said “ You should have read the labe”!!!
Very unprofessional!
Not happy at all!

Unfortunately the smoke from the fires had the index at 10+ so all outdoor events and activities were closed down. e decided to go in and make the best of it anyway. First we took the steam locomotive to the fort itself. Seeing the inside room and stores and kitchen with reenactment staff added to the enjoyment. The troops must have all be out on patrol as there were none to be found.
Then we took a walk through time to the different eras of the ares. Shops and homes and facilities of years gone by was very interesting.
The history was also shown on film at the Capital Theatre.
One of my favorite stops was at Bills Fabulous Fountain for a scoop of Saskatoon Berry Pie Ice Cream on a waffle cone. Soooooooooooooo good.
You can upgrade your tickets to a season pass if you'd like.
I'm sure the kids will be back when the amusement area is open again.

This place is awesome. Some things were closed because of smoke from wildfires, but you could reschedule. The New Indigenous Peoples Exhibit is amazing and eye opening. The Fort Itself is great as well as the historical streets. There is so much to see-don’t miss the movie at the theatre! Plan to spend the whole day.
